what's the rush? it's the dream of every author to hit the best-seller list, so imagine if your first novel not only hit the list but stayed there for almost a year, sold 18 million copies and was translated into 41 languages. that's exactly what happened to paul young's bok "the shack." now he's out with his second
9:38 am
spiritual novel called "crossroads." nice to see you. >> good to be here. >> this must be an incredible moment and journey. wrote the first book "the shack," i understand 15 copies were written maybe. wrote it for your kids and now 18 million copies in circumstance laying. how did you get from 15 to 18 million? >> god has a sense of humor, you know. what i think is my friends are the ones who first ended up giving it away and it began to penetrate in people's lives in a way nobody saw coming. >> what is it about this book because a lot of people write novels and they sit on the shelf and the families are the only ones who read this. why did this one penetrate? >> "the shack" gave people a language to have conversation about god and pain and great losses without it being a religious conversation. >> it's not a religious conversation. people try to pinpoint what kind of books they are, religious, spiritual, how would you describe it? >> 26 publishers turned it down
9:39 am
because they couldn't figure out what genre it was and we still don't know. >> how are they feeling now, the 26? >> some are grateful because it opened up a whole readership that they didn't know exist the. a lot of publishing or music is always backwards looking what. are the demographics, what have we sold and let's do it again so creativity gets sometimes squeezed into a very narrow funnel, and so i think the publishing industry as a whole was grateful something game through, especially when readership has been dropping off and things like that. >> you've given a lot of personal stories of your life. you did that in "the shack." >> it's much more autobiographicaled and there's no way the writer can't put that in. i'm in some of the characters. tony is an unlike al egotistical and self-centered guy. >> couldn't be autobuyingical. >> if you could g back far
9:40 am
enough you'll see tony in my own skin. >> you've had critics, whenever you become successful who say when they come out of the woodwork, your books are not true to the bible, and that they misrepresent the holy trinity. >> for one thing, angry people are involved in the conversation. if they are ambivalent they just don't care and what i love about people who are at least involved in the conversation is they are not telling me about me because i already know about me. if i'm not defensive, if my identity is not at risk here, i'm listening for them to tell me about them, because that's what they are doing. what matters to them, what they are afraid of, what concerns them, and that really does open up a conversation, so i love the controversy. i think -- i think we -- we need to ask these kinds of questions, and they are very human questions. they are very real questions. they are very precious questions, and so i'm not opposed to that kind of, you know, iron-sharpening, the ironing the angles right. >> the new book is "crossroads,"
